Matthew Rathbun Executive Vice President ABR, GRI, CRB, CRS
Position with Coldwell Banker Elite
Hi, I’m Matthew Rathbun and I am the Executive Vice President of Coldwell Banker Elite. After spending many years as a high producing REALTOR®, I joined the leadership team at Coldwell Banker Elite and I am now responsible for company operations, staff and agent development.
I serve on a number of local, state and national committees that promote the development of real estate agents and their resources. As a national instructor I have coached and instructed countless real estate agents and I bring that experience to our Associates at Coldwell Banker Elite.
About You, The Agent
You are an entrepreneur, a business person, a marketer, a negotiator, a technologist and above all a person. You need a support system and coaching to learn how to master all of those responsibilities that come along with being a licensed real estate agent. I’ve seen time and again how being with the right firm is the boost that most need to get their new career off to the best possible start or to take their current career to the next level. My responsibility is to make sure that you everything you need from tools to support in order to be the best possible advocate for your clients and the best chance you have to build a solid, longterm career in real estate.
My Personal Life
Jennifer and I have been married for over 20 years. We have three amazing daughters that we homeschool. Jennifer and I have volunteered for many civic groups over the years, but now concentrate on family and outreach through our church. We’ve attended Grace Church of Fredericksburg for over 20 years and remain very active as volunteers, in missions, audio / visual ministry and wherever we are needed. In addition to being an outstanding mother and wife, Jennifer also volunteers at the Fredericksburg Pregnancy Clinic. You can find my personal blog at www.MatthewRathbun.net.
Linda and Mike – Beaverdam, VA
We probably had THE WORST buyer in a buyer's market. Unbelievable demands seemed to come daily as we approached the closing date. And, since we were in transit from VA to MO, Matthew rose to every challenge. A+ on effort. Also, the whole process was modernized, where we signed almost every document electronically, and even the final close addendums on our Blackberries as we drove to MO the day of the closing. You won't go wrong with Matthew.

This was my wife and I's first time buying a home. Matthew made it not only easy and stress free, but also very fun. He used technology to its fullest potential and we benefited from it. He was always willing to answer questions via phone, text, or email.
Laura Knight – Spotsylvania, VA
He was great! I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a house to purchase in Virginia. He responded to emails in timely manner. He had wonderful advice to give as we walked through many houses together. As I asked a lot of questions, Matthew was always patient and courteous.
Peter Alexander – Stafford, VA
As a real estate investor, primarily, in Virginia for 20 years, I have had experiences with many realtors in residential and commercial investments. As an investor many people such as friends , family, business people and other investors ask for my input and so I get to meet their realtors. I have interacted with many, many, realtors in several states. I can honestly say without reservation that Matt is the best realtor I have ever worked with. I have been doing business with Matt for 11 years. I have purchased and sold many properties with him. I have referred him to family and friends with complete and total confidence. Everyone I have referred to him has been very glad to have had Matthew represent them. He is highly professional, ethical, extremely knowledgeable, experienced and very effective. I consider him to be an outstanding asset to his field. I look forward to continue doing business with him for many years.

Matthew is a true professional. He is highly knowledgeable and was always able to go above and beyond to help me with details at every point of the process. I appreciated his work ethic and caring attitude to locate the best home possible for my family and me.

Matt, I was impressed not only by your detailed knowledge of the role of a real estate broker, but also your passion for making good real estate agents better. I believe through your coaching you pass on a great real estate experience to far more people than you could ever hope to give the public by yourself.
